Do you ever bookmark a recipe, then lose it in your files until it's too late in the season to make it? That's what I did with this one, for the last two years. Oops! Finally, it resurfaced on a day when I was looking for something different and holiday-ish to make for whatever reason.
I was surprised to see powdered sugar listed in the crust ingredients, and was very pleased with the subtle sweet results. This crust was a perfect base to the thick caramel-y filling, allowing the flavor to stand out. And although the chocolate topping had a bit of a snap to it, I just loved this entire combination.
And so did the large neighbor family I talk so often about. 🙂
